The second set really did it for me: Jump Off >>>
Juggernaut >>> Jump Off >>> Did Fatt >>> Sid >>>
Flower Sermon. I heard some serious funk and some serious raging in the Jump > Jugg > Jump sequence.
Great quality recording as well--solid find all around.
Subject: Lotus tearin it up (as usual)
the other detailed descriptions below are dead on.
Subject: Top Notch Show
The opener Jam > Nematode was deliberately subtle and really got the crowd eager to see what was in store...Nematode is a refreshing jazzy version with a high powered jam finish. Reich has a beautiful and nourishing lead in. Chuck stands out hard on percussion during this number and it has a particularly dreamy/psychedelic jam. There is a very smooth and light segue into Slow Cooking which features a rare dark Lotus jam. Luke uses a really tight organ synth effect and the sound makes me picture a factory working on stage. Moonset set the place rocking and was implemented with full control. The Living Storm gets funky as hell with Jesse struttin out crisp baselines. It develops into an all out dance party with Mike leading with a soulful jam on guitar. The Mikesnack is by far the dirtiest and funkiest version I have ever heard. Mike gets bluesy as hell and with performances like this solidifies himself as a rising star on the scene. The AoE to finish it off was straight funk. This song in particular has seen tremendous growth since its conception last fall.
Expired Slang kickoff was tight and has a rock heavy jam. The Jump Off > Jugg > Jump off is straight up obnoxious and potentially the highlight of this incredible show for me. Jump off rocks off in regular high energy fashion and blends into a mystery/spacey jam in Jugg...it is really impossible to even tell its Jugg until about 3 min. into the song. It sails back into Jump Off with what can only be described as a rawkus Rage Against the Machine like jam. Raw guitar licks and deep synth effects. The Did Fatt kept its patented tribal groove and served for a short rest...but 7 min. in the bottom drops out into some sick DnB with Steve laying shit down on drums. 12 min. explodes into heavy guitar work. Sid goes from funky beach sides tropics into just straight up funk > FlowerSermon which was just 18 min of dance party mayhem. One particular moment Mike plays a slow, but beautiful and inspirational guitar lick over the fast paced dance grooves unlike I have ever heard in this song. Hammerstrike for the closer really matched the mood of the venue (Freedom and Liberation) and served as foreshadowing for the obnoxiously dirty Hammerstrike tour to come this fall.
Overall, the show was extremely explorational. It show cased the versatility and cohesion of the band in its finest form. Sorry for the long review, but I felt it was important to articulate why this is a stand out performance instead of just flinging a thumbs up. Thanks Mike D. for an awesome review as well. There is not one part of this show that lacks energy. One other think, Scott on the light ROCKED that shit.
Subject: good show
